Bleached enemone

Hello I have an anemone will the bright orange foot not sure of the name. My problem is I think I bleached him about a month ago I got a really good light and I don't think I acclimated him long enough because he is no longer white he is a tanish brown color he is still eating good and acting normal he's just an ugly color is there anything I can do to get his color back

The anemone you describe is a condy, they have an orange foot. The fact that he is turning from white to brown is a good thing, he is working on coloring back up the way he should be. It will just take time. What light did you have and what did you upgrade to?

We say anemone is bleached when its color is white. Good thing you upgraded your lights now he is happy turning into its original color which is light brown. That's a healthy anemone.
